      175 S. Halbpergament Frakturschrift, roter Schnitt Buch in altersgemäß sehr guter Erhaltung, Einband mit altersgemäßen Gebrauchsspuren, Seiten hell und sauber, Einbandinnendeckel und Vorsatzblatt mit handschriflt. Eintrag. Johann Ernst Teichmann (* 25. Juli 1694 in Bayreuth 1746 in Stammbach) war evangelischer Pfarrer und Historiker. Johann Ernst Teichmann, Sohn eines markgraflichen Hofriemers, besuchte das Gymnasium Christian-Ernestinum seiner Geburtsstadt Bayreuth und später die Fürstenschule Heilsbronn. Er studierte Theologie an der Universität Wittenberg und der Universität Altdorf. Er wurde 1720 Pfarrer in Haag und 1725 in Stammbach, wo er bis zu seinem Lebensende wirkte. Sein Vorgänger als Stammbacher Pfarrer war Georg Friedrich Eck in den Jahren 1697 bis 1725, ab 1785 ist Christoph Heinrich Schlenk als Nachfolger bekannt. Überliefert sind von Teichmann Werke der Dichtkunst, eine erste Chronik von Stammbach und eine Beschreibung des Klosters Himmelkron. Die Chronik erwies sich als fehlerhaft, wertvoll sind allerdings Teichmanns Beschreibungen aus seiner eigenen Zeit. Für das Kloster Himmelkron schrieb er neben einer umfassenden Chronik auch eine ausführliche Schilderung des Todes des Markgrafen Georg Friedrich Karl, bei dem er 1735 wohl persönlich anwesend war. Mit der Bestattung von Markgraf Georg Friedrich Karl im Kloster Himmelkron knüpften die Hohenzollern an die Grablege der Grafen von Orlamünde an.

        Gebed van Voltaire. Calligraphic manuscript broadside in folio (62.5 x 49cm); eight lines of calligraphic text penned in brown ink interspersed with ornamental flourishes and small devices within triple line border; decorative corner pieces .

      - Voltaire (Arouet, François-Marie 1694-1778). Gebed van Voltaire. Calligraphic manuscript broadside in folio (62.5 x 49cm); eight lines of calligraphic text penned in brown ink interspersed with ornamental flourishes and small devices within triple line border; decorative corner pieces . The Netherlands, late 18th century. Neatly mounted on tissue. Contemporary Dutch satirical verses by an anonymous author imagining a prayer by Voltaire : ‘Lord, too often disowned, Although proclaimed throughout the Universe Hear from my uncouth mouth the latest supplication My heart has loved You, but I, a human being, have sinned Have, Father, denied You yet searched for Your law I see Eternity approaching, yet see it without fear Think not that the Lord, who called me into being Who has blessed me in this dark vale of tears When I have died, will punish me eternally.’ ‘Voltaire’s Prayer’ is one of his celebrated aphorisms contained in a letter of 16th May 1767 to a close friend and trusted collaborator, Étienne Noël Damilaville (1723-68) : “J’ai toujours fait une prière à Dieu, qui est fort courte. La voici. Mon Dieu, rendez nos enemies bien ridicules ! Dieu m’a exaucé.’ (I always made one prayer to God, a very short one. Here it is: ‘O Lord, make our enemies quite ridiculous ! God granted it. ‘) Traces of waterstaining in right margin, small repairs without loss. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Essay de dioptrique.

      - Paris, Jean Anisson, 1694. In-4, plein vélin rigide de l'époque, dos lisse titré à la plume, (1) f. de titre, (22), 233, (1) p. de privilège, bandeaux, culs-de-lampe, nombreuses illustrations sur bois dans le texte, une carte de la Lune gravée par Duchange hors-texte. Edition originale de cet ouvrage consacré, pour la première partie, à la nature de la lumière, à sa diffusion, à l’anatomie de l’œil, aux mécanismes de la vision et à une théorie des couleurs. La deuxième partie est consacrée à la fabrication des verres optiques et des lentilles, leur polissage et leur utilisation, tant pour les microscopes que pour les lunettes astronomiques. Nicolas Hartsoeker est l’inventeur du microscope sphérique et du microscope à barillet (illustré ici pour la première fois, pages 175-176). "Il fournit divers instruments à l'Observatoire de Paris: un grand microscope à trois verres, des lunettes montées, des objectifs, etc. Il acquit ainsi une excellente réputation d'opticien" (cf. Daumas, ‘Les instruments scientifiques’, p.118). L’auteur rend également compte de ses observations au microscope, en particulier celles du spermatozoïde. C’est dans cet ouvrage qu’il développe sa théorie de la génération dite "des animalculistes": il décrit un être vivant microscopique, mais déjà parfaitement constitué logé dans la tête des spermatozoïdes, qui, après transfert, croît dans l'utérus par ajout de couches successives, l’œuf féminin servant à le nourrir (cf. illustration). Astronome, géomètre et physicien hollandais, Nicolas Hartsoeker (1656-1725) vécut tour à tour en Hollande et en France et obtint rapidement une large notoriété scientifique internationale. Il se lia avec Huygens, Cassini, Malebranche, et l'Hôpital. Membre de plusieurs académies, il donna des leçons de mathématiques au tsar Pierre le Grand. Carte de la Lune gravée hors texte par Gaspard Duchange (p. 179), nombreux bois dans le texte: diagrammes, microscopes, mais aussi un spermatozoïde (p. 227) et "l'homonculus" (p. 230). (Daumas, p. 44. DSB, VI, 148-149. Poggendorff, I, 1026). Un petit accroc de papier marginal p. 69. Quelques rousseurs. Bel exemplaire, grand de marges, dans sa première reliure de vélin.

        Jesus is God: or, the deity of Jesus Christ vindicated. Being an Abstract of some Sermons Preach'd in the Parish-Church of St. James Clerkenwell

      London: Printed for Will. Newton, 1694. [16], 125pp, [1]. With initial imprimatur leaf and a cancel title leaf. Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rubbed with a little loss to spine. Reducing stain to head of title, preliminaries and first 12 leaves, else a clean and crisp copy in an unsophisticated binding. Several ink inscriptions of 'John Cain his book 1763', to verso of A1 and final leaf, later inscription of 'J.H.L. Parker, 1940' to FFEP. A rare variant edition, with a cancel title, of an altogether uncommon work by acclaimed preacher Deuel Pead (1647-1727), Minister of St. James, Clerkenwell, known for high church leanings and encouraging his congregations to bow reverently at the name of Jesus. Pead's sermons were published with regularity between 1694 and 1719, and he is perhaps best remembered for his Annus victoriis mirabilis (London, 1706/7), a New Years Eve thanksgiving sermon occasioned by the Duke of Marlborough's victories in the War of the Spanish Succession. This present title, described as 'an abstract of some sermons Preach'd in...St James Clerkenwell' is scripturally based on Matthew XIII, 58, and was apparently his first published work. Pead had been, however, long recognised as an inspiring preacher; he was one of several young clergyman dispatched to Virginia in the seventeenth-century as part of Henry Compton, Bishop of London's attempt to establish Anglicanism in the New World. He served St. Peter's Parish, Henrico, and is recorded as having preached at Jamestown in 1686. ESTC locates a single copy of this variant, which names only William Norton as published, at Chetham's library, and only 7 copies of the original edition 'printed for George Conyers' also, (BL, Cambridge, Cambridge Trinity College, Folger, Oxford, Pennsylvania VPD and Union Theological). c/f Wing P961.. Variant of the first edition. 8vo.

        Elémens de botanique, ou méthode pour reconnaître les plantes.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1694 - 3 vols, 8vo (198 x 125 mm), I (text) pp [xx] 562 [20]; II plates 1-235; II plates 236-451, with engraved frontispieces to each vol, 451 engraved plates, and two engraved headpieces and two engraved initials in first volume; a fine copy in eighteenth-century French red morocco, gilt floral panels on sides, spines gilt with urns, etc, gilt edges, spines a bit sun-faded. First edition of Tournefort’s classic work, ‘of considerable importance in the development of systematic botany’ (Hunt). Some 10,146 species in 648 genera are presented, covering all the plants then known to Western botany. Tournefort utilised the concepts of genera and species as pioneered by Caspar Bauhin, developing a classification scheme based on flower and corolla structure. He also outlined a system of classification for groups higher than genera. He was the first to develop consistently the generic concept, and his system of classification became the predominant one until Linnaeus. The work is notable for the fine illustrations, and especially for their detail and accuracy of depictions of floral dissections. They are by Claude Aubriet (1665–1742), principal artist at the Jardin du Roi. ‘Aubriet, a native of Châlons-sur-Marne, found his way as a young man to Paris, where he was engaged by Joubert to assist in the production of drawings for the royal collection. He soon attracted the attention of Tournefort, who commissioned him to make the engravings for his celebrated Elémens .’ (Hunt). The fine frontispieces depict a bird’s-eye view of the Versailles gardens, with putti aloft holding a banner bearing the works title. The frontispeices, and possibly the headpieces, are by the Flemish baroque engraver, Cornelis Vermeulen (1644–1708). Provenance: Gaspard Bose, contemporary of Tournefort and author of several botanical monographs, including one on the Tournefort system (De calice Tournefortii, Leipzig, 1733); he created a famous botanical garden in Leipzig; with his engraved armorial ex-libris ‘Bibliotheca Bosiana Hortens.’ on versos of titles; Count Grigori Stroganoff (1770–1857), Grand Chamberlain of the Imperial Court and Ambassador to Sweden and Spain, with armorial bookplates on front pastedowns (over an earlier bookplate); ; frontispieces with small armorial stamp of the Biblioteka Sibirskavo Universiteta in Cyrillic on margins of frontispieces in vols I and III, with inventory number 8632 on front pastedowns and heads of spines of I and III Hunt 392; Nissen BBI 1976; Pritzel 9423; Stafleu and Cowan TL2 14780 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De pictura veterum libri tres, tot in locis emendati, and tam multis accessionibus aucti, ut plane novi possint videri

      typis Regneri Leers, 1694. Pp. (24) 296 (20). Unito a: JUNIUS FRANCISCUS. Catalogus architectorum, mechanicorum, sed praecipuae pictorum, statuariorum, caelatorum, tornatorum, aliorumque artificum, et operum quae fecerunt. Stessi dati tipografici. Pp. (32) 236 (16). Due parti in un volume di cm. 37,5. Magnifica antiporta incisa in rame da Joseph Mulder (1658-1728) su disegno di Adrian Van Der Werff, raffigurante un tempio antico gremito di figure allegoriche della pittura e delle arti. Ritratto a piena pagina dell'Autore. Legatura coeva in piena pelle; dorso a sei nervi con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro agli scomparti, dentelles dorate e sguardie in bella carta marmorizzata. Tagli spruzzati e segnalibro in seta azzurra. Mancanze alle cuffie e all'ultimo scomparto, alcune spellature ai piatti, fenditure alle cerniere (piatti ben saldi). Lieve alone al margine inferiore (più evidente in alcune carte centrali) e sporadiche fioriture, peraltro nel complesso buon esemplare. Francois du Jon (1591-1677), nativo di Heidelberg, fu tra i pionieri della filologia germanica. Grazie alla frequentazione dell'amico Rubens e della sua ristretta cerchia di frequentazioni, maturò l'idea di scrivere questo monumentale trattato, considerato tra i principali contributi di storia dell'arte classica. Leopoldo Cicognara (Catalogo ragionato dei libri d'arte e d'antichità, nr. 148) lo definì come "il miglior libro che si conosca in questo genere, per cui il Dati sospese di pubblicare ulteriori Vite a quelle che diede alla luce, conoscendo di far cosa inutile, e che altri aveva ben esaurita". Lo stesso Julius von Schlosser, agli inizi del Novecento, paragonò l'importanza dell'opera di Du Jon a quella di Winckelmann. La seconda parte è una sorta di dizionario degli artisti dell'antichità classica. Seconda edizione, uscita postuma, ma rivista e aumentata dall'Autore. La prima del 1637, uscita in formato piccolo, era priva della seconda parte. Cfr. Iccu (che segnala due tirature del medesimo anno, una con 24 pagine preliminari e una con 32); Graesse, III, 499; Brunet, II, 599-600: "Bonne edition de cet ouvrage estime"..

"The growing practice, especially among merchants, of submitting their disputes to arbitration, which was encouraged by the statute of 1697-1698, produced several books on the subject of arbitration and awards. The first of these books, by the author of Regula Placitandi was published in 1694. The author warns arbitrators that they 'must keep themselves within their jurisdiction and their awards must be measured by the rules of law. 'Tis true they are not so tied up to the formalities of our lawyers; notwithstanding there are many things which must be observed to make their arbitraments good and effectual'" (Holdsworth). The main text is followed by a selection of precedents. Arbitrarium Redivivum would remain the only book on the topic until the publication of Bacon's Compleat Arbitrator in 1713. The ESTC locates 4 copies, 2 in North America (Clark University, Harvard Law School), OCLC locates 7, 4 in North America (NY State Appellate Division, UC-Davis Law School, UCLA, Yale Law School).

        Der Königl. Maytt. zu Schweden, verordneter Gouverneur über Liefland und die Stadt Riga, General Major über die Infanterie und Oberster über ein Regiment geworbener Dragouner, Ericus Soop Freyherr, Herr zu Brunäsz und Saleby. [=Headline.) Dated Riga 13. Dec. 1694.

      (Riga, 1694). Folio. Ettbladstryck. Vikt, med ett minimalt hål i vecket. Tagen ur band och monterad på papper i övre vänsterkant, liten reva i övre vänstra hörnet. Ej i VD17. Efterlysning proklamerad av ståthållaren i Riga Eric Soop att kapten Reinholdt Patkul, som hemligen flytt från Stockholm och som troligen kommit till Livland, är fågelfri och att ingen får hjälpa eller härbärgera honom utan han skall omedelbart rapporteras och fängslas "... dass niemand obgedachten Capitain Patkul annehmen oder beherbergen, noch verheelen, sondern wo derselbe allhier in diesem königl. General Gouvernemente gefunden würde, anhalten und gebühren angeben soll, damit Er in sichere Verwahrunn genommen, und bisz zuer fernern Verordnung behalten werden könne". Processen mot Johann Reinhold Patkul jämte de andra ledande livländare som i Stockholm protesterat mot godsreduktionen i Livland inleddes i Stockholm mars 1694. Under rättegången ansökte Patkul om nåd men då ansökan avslogs flydde han från Stockholm. I december 1694 dömdes han i sin frånvaro att mista högra handen, samt ära, liv och gods. Hans medanklagade dömdes också till döden, men benådades med sex års fängelse. Som bekant blev Patkul inte tillfångatagen i Riga utan dök efter ett tag upp hos August II i Dresden. Den svenska "rättvisan fick vänta till 1706 innan den kunde göra upp med den "store landsförrädaren".

        The Great Historical, Geographical and Poetical Dictionary; Being A Curious Miscellany of Sacred and Prophane History

      Henry Rhodes et al, London 1694 - Unpaginated. 38.5 cm Folio rebound in half-leather with marbled boards. Blind stamps at top of title page. Moderate spotting, thumbing and damp stains. Some worm holes at bottom of "A" pages. Attempt to repair a tear on p. CHA. Repair to CRA. Ink notations on pp. COL and JES. This first historical "dictionary" in English was authored by "several Learned Men" but credit is given to "the best Historians, Chronologers, and Lexicographers" on the title page. The text consists of a compilation of the major classical dictionaries in Latin and French. It is an enlarged English translation of the sixth edition of Louis Moreri's Grand Dictionaire published in Lyon in 1674, itself corrected and enlarged by Le Clerk. Not a dictionary in the modern sense, it is more of an encyclopedia of historical figures and famous places. Canada, for example, is "a great Country in America Septentrionalis [ie. North America] which is also named New France, because the French possess the better part of it, and have divers Colonies there." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Copper Lottery Token. 'The best and fairest chance at last.'

      n.p. [c.1694?] Copper lottery token, 3cm diameter. On one side stands the figure of Justice, scales in right hand and raised sword in left; on the obverse the lettering 'THE BEST / AND FAIREST / CHANCE AT / LAST'; the figure of Justice is sl. worn at the raised extremities. v.g.T.C. Noble's A Brief History of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers ... (London, 1889) notes that in 1694 the company temporarily leased their hall for a lottery, which was called 'the best and fairest chance at last' (p.49). John Nicholl's Some Account of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers goes further, stating 'the Lottery was instigated by a Mr Thomas Hatfield and was drawn at the Hall of the Ironmongers' Company. Hatfield hired the Hall for eight days at a guinea a day and the Company also received five tickets'. A scarce early lottery token, apparently dating from 1694, the year the state lottery was introduced in England. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

        [Oval miniature portrait painting of Voltaire].[France?], "1687" [=ca. 1735?]. Oval portrait painting (11 x 9 cm) in grisaille on copper, signed and dated at the back "'J. de Cerf A[nn]o 1687". Mounted in a gilt rectangular wooden frame (34.5 x 28 cm).

      Oval miniature portrait painting of the acclaimed French Enlightenment author Voltaire (1694-1778), showing him in one of his favourite poses: sitting with a book in his hand in front of a bookcase. The portrait is signed at the back "'J. de Cerf A[nn]o 1687", which is an obviously erroneous date. A modern note on the back suggests that the artists is the obscure painter Louis Le Cerf, an artist working at Grenoble around 1735. The portrait itself is in very good condition, but the frame has lost most of his gilding.

        1694 Greek & Latin Epistles & Bible of Pope Clement I Early Church at Corinth

      Londini : impensis Jacobi Adamson, ad insigne Angeli & Coronæ in Cœmeterio D. Pauli, M DC XCIV. [1694] - 1694 Greek & Latin Epistles & Bible of Pope Clement I Early Church at Corinth “Do we then think it to be a great and marvelous thing, if the Creator of the universe shall bring about the resurrection of them that have served Him with holiness in the assurance of a good faith, seeing that He showeth to us even by a bird the magnificence of His promise?” – Clement I, Epistles Clement I, considered the first Apostolic Father of the Catholic Church, was pope during the first century AD and known for his epistles to the church at Corinth. This letter is perhaps the earliest Christian document written after the New Testament. Much like the letter Saint Paul wrote to the Corinthians, Clement I called for immediate repentance and an obedience to church authority. It offers an insight to what the early Christian church valued and how it was affected by the Roman Church. This letter is also one of the earliest works to make a clear distinguishing between bishops, presbyters, and deacons. This 1694 printing is paired with the second epistle of Clement, however, this sermon was not written by Clement. Scholars believe that this homily was not written until the second century. Printed in Greek and Latin on parallel pages. Item number: #1763 Price: $550 CLEMENT I, Pope S. Clementis Epistolæ duæ ad Corinthios, interpretibus Patricio Junio, Gottifredo Vendelino, & Joh. Bapt.
